Bonfire Block Party, sponsored by the local Bonfire Brewery, returned for its 5th year in Eagle, CO over this weekend. It felt as if it was an event for the locals- local music & art, local food, local beer. The beer was certainly flowing, and if beer wasn’t your preference, there was an amazing kombucha option that seemed to suit the crowd. The smell of delicious food was irresistible, from poke bowls, to tacos, gyros and more. T-shirts and shorts were out, and there was hardly a sweater in the distance, everyone seemed more than satisfied with the amazing weather, and lack of rain. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, every type of person and age group seemed to be in attendance.

As soon as Party Guru Press entered the festival on Friday, we stepped into Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears jamming out on the Boneyard stage. The crowd could hear him wailing on his guitar from a mile away, he busted out some funky guitar moves and everyone was absolutely loving his unique style.

On the opposite side, the Haymaker stage, we had North Missisippi Allstars making everyone bounce around and dance to some southern rock and mild blues, not to mention the combination of great vocals.

Railroad Earth closed out the evening with some of their most known songs, leaving us with little to no voices and smiles for miles, for a bluegrass lover- it was a dream.

On Saturday, the weather was even warmer, the beer was flowing even harder, and the dance moves got wilder. The Lil Smokies and J.Roddy Walston & The Business tackled the Haymaker stage to start off the evening.

Ripe and The Evolution graced us with some crowd-pleasers on the Bonfire & Boneyard Stages.

Twiddle sent us off into the sunset with their favorite tunes.

To conclude the evening and the weekend, the ever changing sounds of Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue had the entire crowd singing, dancing and spinning in circles. It was definitely a performance that could not be missed, the beautiful voices and instrumentals carried through what sounded like all of Eagle, they had the entire festival singing along by the time it was over.
